That's how i can describe it..it was a little snappy on the recoil..but it was quick to reaquire the targets.I shot a couple hundred rounds wwb's,jhps....i found the 165 gr. jhp hydros worked best for me.Had no problems with mis fires or feed .Since this is the first time i've shot a gun in 20 plus years, i think i did pretty well at hitting what i was aiming at such as head and center body shots..i feel pretty comfy with it and will get better with more shooting time.One thing after shooting the fullsize 40,i was intent on getting the 40 in the compact...but may go with the 9 because i don't know if i can control the recoil with the smaller gun...hopefully i can shoot both and make a better decision.Thanks for the long read.

Another happy M&P owner

One thing nice about the MP, the ergonomics are so good that the recoil doesn't batter you in any way, but a compact 40 might be a handful. I've got a S&W 908, a compact 9mm, the recoil is pretty sharp, but still controllable, taking the same size to the recoil of a 40...not my preference.

MP40 is SWEET!!!!

I took my MP40 to the range for just the 3rd time last Sunday. I put about 200 rounds through it and have never shot better. It was sweet!!!


I agree with G56 about the 40 probably being a little snappie for a compact. I will be buying the 9mm Compact as soon as possible.
